A PRACTICAL METHOD FOR ESTIMATION OF POINT LIGHT-SOURCES
M. Weber and R. Cipolla
We introduce a general model for point light-sources and show how the parameters of a source at finite distance can be estimated by shading on an object with known geometry and Lambertian reflectance. The parameters we estimate include not only the direction but also the location of the source. Furthermore, we argue that the system introduced here can be used in arbitrarily complex background illumination, provided one can switch on and off the light-source that is to be estimated.
If you have difficulty viewing files that end
which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find
tools to uncompress them at the gzip
If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending
'.ps.gz'), then you may be able to
find tools to view them at
We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
